DQL Documentation

Hello Dojo Community, where can I find more documentation on the DQL stuff?

I want to know how to tell the code to get all records which a given column string is like '%TEXT%'


Thanks in advance.

    Have you taken a look at this yet? https://developer.domo.com/docs/dataset-api-reference/dataset#Query%20a%20DataSet


    You should be able to provide Domo a SQL statement to choose which records you get.


    Example from that documentation:

    POST https://api.domo.com/v1/datasets/query/execute/ce79d23f-ef7d-4318-9787-ebde54a8c5b4
    Accept: application/json
    Authorization: bearer <your-valid-oauth-access-token>

    {"sql": "SELECT * FROM table"}

    Based on that I'd expect something like below to work.

    {"sql": "SELECT * FROM table WHERE column1 like '%Text%'"}

    Or do you mean something else entirely?

  • Thanks. It can work.


    I was expecting to recreate something like what was shown in the Advanced App Building course at DP19 with Cameron Williams:


    var dql = {
    columns: [
    exprType: "COLUMN",
    column: "PrimaryInspector"
    exprType: "FUNCTION",
    name: "SUM",
    arguments: [{
    exprType: "COLUMN",
    column: "TotalTime"
    groupByColumns: [{
    exprType: "COLUMN",
    column: "PrimaryInspector"
    where: {
    exprType: "EQUALS",
    rightExpr: {
    exprType: "COLUMN",
    column: "SecondaryInspector"
    leftExpr: {
    exprType: "STRING_VALUE",
    value: "NESTOR MEZA"

    domo.post('/dql/v1/mwp', dql, { contentType: 'application/json' }).then((data) => {
    var rows = [];
    data.rows.forEach(row =>{
    var obj = {};
    data.columns.forEach((column,i) => {
    obj[column] = row[i];

    But it's kindda fuzzy so I'll go with traditional SQL for now

  • Oh interestings, I feel like their developer documentation is a little lacking, I've read through quite a bit but never came across doing it that way, maybe the documentation exists but I haven't seen it.

  • Hopefully some of the gurus sees this post and gives us a learning path on this topic.


    Thanks anyways! Robot Happy
